Inspiring Girls Leading the Way

The event’s panel included Nila Varman, the founder and host of The Nila Extract, along with Dr. Ayesha Kareem, a Malala Fund Girl Fellow, and Aaliya Malik, a dedicated Young Women and Girls Volunteer at Apna Haq.

Award-winning journalist Nelufar Hedayet skillfully moderated the panel, delving into the profound question of how these young girls discover their passions and what drives their advocacy efforts. The discussion also touched upon the profound influence their personal experiences have on their activism and the joy they find in embracing girlhood.

The highlight of the event was undoubtedly Malala Yousafzai’s appearance on stage, where she recounted her incredible journey as an activist and shared compelling stories from her global campaign for girls’ education, led through her non-profit organization, Malala Fund.

Malala’s Vision for Empowering Girls

Malala Yousafzai, Nobel laureate and girls’ education activist said: “I am honoured to partner with The Caring Family Foundation to celebrate girls and young women, today and every day. Girls’ experiences and solutions deserve all of our attention. By investing in girls’ ability to learn and lead, we can help create a brighter, more equitable world where every girl can fearlessly chase her dreams and live them out for all to see.” 

Patricia Caring, Co-founder of The Caring Family Foundation and Co-Chairwoman of Annabel’s said, “On this International Day of the Girl, it is our honour to host Malala Yousafzai, Malala Fund and an extraordinary panel of young women at Annabel’s. Hearing Malala today was emotional for myself and The Caring Family Foundation, as her message is not only about strength and courage to stand up for what she believes in, but also one of resilience and forgiveness.

She is an inspirational thought leader, teaching us the importance of protecting, educating and supporting girls from around the world, a mission that aligns with the work of The Caring Family Foundation. We both believe that girls should not be deprived of the basic right of education, but there are 120 million girls in the world who have been denied, or do not have access to learning. It was a unique moment for us to come together, and act as a united voice to empower and advocate for girls who still face challenges in our world today.”
